Decor advice: Roman blinds






badkar med tassar

MMM there it is again…my black/white floor wet dream :)

In the Summertime, there is strong daylight from all directions. At times the bright Summer sun can be a bit much inside, which is why the Roman blind is a great invention. They lock out a decent amount of light, can be raised and lowered, and come in a variety of fabrics to match all types of decor. I’m going to get one for my kitchen as the light is so bright I’m thinking about wearing shades inside to avoid being blinded by the morning sun! :)

There are many different types including those where you pull up manually and tie with a simple bow, to more advanced models which are ties to hooks on the window frame. Some manufacturers even make custom made roman blinds using your own fabrics, although Ikea and Hemtex mass-produce simpler models at reasonable prices :)

What do you think about Roman blinds? Beautiful Roman blinds, or beautiful only if you’re a blind Roman? :)

Have a great weekend my lovelies!

    I love blinds! In fact I would love to have some for my kitchen windows (the old curtains are just dirty and ugly)… Maybe this fall I will finally change them. :-) Thanks for the wonderful pictures & inspiration! Enjoy the weekend Maria!

    I love Roman blinds. I have one in my room, custom made. I think it is very elegant window covering.
